    The Cebu City Zoo in the Philippines is now offering Python massages. For a small fee, thrill-seeking visitors can lay underneath four 20-foot Burmese Pythons and freak out until zookeepers remove them. The only problems are 1) Burmese Pythons are constrictor killers, so if o... / Continue →

    The Great Horror Campout is a $231 camp that takes place here in Los Angeles, in which, from 8pm to 8am, participants are constantly harassed by fake monsters and killers that all "have the permission to touch/bag/kidnap/drag you." No word if you're allowed to fight back, but ... / Continue →

    In heartbreaking news for anybody who's ever dreamed of covering themselves in bananas and skydiving onto the monkey island at the zoo, a recent study conducted by the Paignton Zoo in southwest England has discovered bananas farmed for human consumption are actually bad for the... / Continue →

    I don't normally get involved in politics because it's not my job to depress the shit out of people, but I can't help but feel sorry for this little monkey. Obviously he escaped from the National Zoo and wants to return, but, due to the government shutdown, he can't get back i... / Continue →

    This is a video of an otter juggling a rock at the Sea Life Oberhausen in Germany. He's like, really good at it. Better than I could ever be, and I SHOULD have better hand-eye coordination. I've even been kicked out of a movie theater before for not being able to get the pop... / Continue →

    These are several shots from the People's Park in Luohe, Henan province, China, of the dogs the park uses as permanent stand-ins for the exotic species they claim to keep. Their African Lion is actually a Tibetan mastiff (above), and their wolf and leopard displays are filled ... / Continue →

    In potentially exciting cloning news, scientists have successfully drawn liquid wooly mammoth blood from a carcass found in Siberia. Fingers crossed by this time next year they're inexpensive enough to hire for a kid's birthday party. About 15,000 years ago, an old female woo... / Continue →

    Seen here showing off his sweet fur arm, a werewolf and some other lady record the speech of an African elephant that has learned to speak five words in Korean. I think I know two, so he's already smarter than me (plus handsomer). I like learning dirty words! The pachyderm i... / Continue →

    25-year old David Villalobos was recently mauled by a Siberian tiger at the Bronx Zoo after jumping out his monorail train and into the tiger pen below because he wanted "to be one with the animal." Now I asked my buddy Terry (who is usually full of wisdom and Sierra Nevadas) ... / Continue →

    This is Batbear. Batbear is an Asian black bear with Mickey Mouse ears that keeps the Wrocław Zoo in Poland safe from The Penguin and Killer Croc. Oooooooooor sits around all day waiting to be fed. Also, I'm pretty sure that's a lady-bear. Admittedly, I don't know much abou... / Continue →

    Time for my closeup! I swear, actors: so vain. This is a video created by giving a gorilla a video camera in a special Kong-proof box. It's very similar in style to the BBC's Chimpcam series, except instead of chimps it's gorillas. I swear, somebody comes up with one good i... / Continue →

    This is a video of a gorilla at the Port Lympne Wild Animal Park in Kent, England that likes to walk around like a human. Now I'm not saying this guy is obviously the missing link evolutionists have been looking for, but I'm also not saying he isn't. But what I AM saying is j... / Continue →

    Somewhere, a new universe was just born. Okay maybe not, but only because DK here chose to play Pokémon instead of his self-titled release. Way to go. On August 6, amateur photographer Chris Spicuzza was spending her day at the San Francisco Zoo, taking photos of the gori... / Continue →

    Note: Video is after the jump because my Force wasn't strong enough to keep the video on the front page. I know, I'm a weakling. Following in the footsteps of Star Wars Kid, somebody went and edited a lightsaber into the hands of Ninja Bear. Only problem is, he can't seem to... / Continue →

    Note: Video is after the jump because this bear's ninja moves are so fierce they could kill you on the front page. This is a video of a bear at the Hiroshima Zoo named Cloud. Cloud is trying out for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and wants to work the bō staff like Donatel... / Continue →

    One day, in the not too distant future, there won't be any more animals. I'm talking none, not even hotdogs. So one zoo is taking a proactive approach to extinction education. Namely, LEGO animals. Wait, WTF? Opened yesterday, the Philadelphia Zoo's Lego-made exhibit, call... / Continue →
